WSJ confirms in-cell touch technology for the next iPhone

0. phoneArena 17 Jul 2012, 03:19 posted on

The touch layer integration not only shaves about half a millimeter from the screen package thickness, but also improves the image, say screen specialists. Samsung has been doing this with its AMOLED displays since the first Galaxy S, allowing it to make very thin devices with giant screens, like the new Galaxy S III.

feel like apple is cutting the cost of the touch panel...
i guess the screen will end up black out when doing the drop test, just like sgs3 :)

I feel like...sour grapes for you, sir :) PS: and stop comparing Apple to Samsung or LG or any other chun-chan brand. It is like comparing Benz to a Kia...

yeah.. like benz is an american brand like apple.. Why not compare those companies? They all make smartphones. Not because they're asian companies doesn't mean they can't beat apple. Man.. grow up. You racist..calling asian companies "chun-chan brand".

That's kind of rough. I know Apple has fallen behind, but calling them Kia seems a but uncalled for.

Is this the same screen technology as used in the Xperia S aswell? I swear I remember reading an article on some kind of screen technology on the XS?

P.s these 'chun chun' brands supply a lot of the components for the iphone, Samsung, LG > screen, Sony > camera etc etc...

"Samsung has been doing this since the original Galaxy S."

Apple getting all great artistic again, while suing over shapes.

Apple now using technology Samsung incorporated in "the original galaxy s". That was 2009/2010 based technology for samsungs androids,as good an example as ever as to how far behind in innovation apple is

They are already behind with their ios6, they are also behind with screen technology?! Lol never mind for apple, they will just call their lawyers and file a lawsuit to those companies who may think that their godly apple is losing and threatening it's sales. And their followers a.k.a ísheep, will defend apple up to their last bytes of their data plan, that their idevices are superior products. It's ridiculous and so annoying...
